SANTA CLAUS, Ind., (/P)—The town named after Yuletide's Mr. Claus is going to capitalize on its name by going big business the year around. Every twelfth month for more ! than a quarter of a century Santa Claus, the community, has had 30 i days or so of stirring activity. i Now Milton Harris, 38, general i manager of Santa Claus of Santa ! Claus, Inc., is going to commer- I cialize the idea of a Santa Claus i headquarters in Indiana all the i time. He has defeated rival pro- j moters in the courts. ! Companies Are Formed. Harris and others organized Santa Claus of Santa Claus, Ind., with 10,000 shares of no-par stock. They signed five-year contracts with seven toy manufacturers to show their products on 100 square feet of floor space at $2,500 a year each. Then Carl Barrett, Chicago advertising man, and others, formed Santa Claus, Inc., the Santa Claus Good Fellowship club, Inc., and Santa Claus Workshop. Ind. The Barrett . interests bought several pieces of land, including some on which Harris and his associates held leases. Barrett gave 32 acres for a Santa Claus park and erected a 20 foot statue of Santa Claus in concrete. Will Rebuild Town. The Harris group started litigation. A court forbade the Barretts to use the land for 25 years, and gave t'arris exclusive right to exploit the Santa Claus idea here, awarding him also $5,000 damages. Harris says the company intends to rebuild most of the town, with buildings modeled after those pictured in •children's books, and run a year round exhibition j where Santa Claus will bring I pleasure to tourists and profit to i the promoters every day of the i year. He plans an inn where i Christmas dinners will be served j daily. Sent for Rcmailinjf. The town of Santa Claus was originally Santa Fe. In 1855 it applied for a postoffice, and on Christmas eve there was a town meeting. By acclamation the meeting adopted the name of Santa ! Claus. i Fifty years later, Joe Martin became postmaster. A kindly soul, he began answering childish letters, addressed to "Santa Claus," which went to him in accordance with postal regulations. Soon thousands began addressing stamped greeting cards and packages to the Santa Claus post- office for remailing with the cancellation stamp. Mason City and Clear Lake 4?
